The Final Battle Lyrics by Les Miserables
The Final Battleby Les Miserables
Army Officer [from beyond the barricade]
You at the barricade listen to this
The people of Paris sleep in their beds
You have no chance
No chance at all
Why throw your lives away?
Let us die facing our foes
Make them bleed while we can
Make 'em pay through the nose
Make 'em pay for every man!
Let others rise
To take our place
Until the earth is free!
[Amidst increasingly heavy gunfire, Marius is shot. Enjolras is killed at the summit of the barricade. All at the barricade are killed, except Marius, who is wounded and unconscious, and Valjean. Valjean discovers that Marius is still alive and carries him down into the sewers to escape. Javert climbs over the barricade looking for Valjean's body. Not finding it, he realizes that Valjean must be in the sewers, so he goes off to where he must emerge.]
